Theatres on New York's Broadway will temporarily dim their lights in tribute to the late Lauren Bacall.

Bacall, who died earlier this week at the age of 89, won Tony Awards for her starring roles in Applause and Woman of the Year.

In memory of the actress, who also appeared in Waiting in the Wings, Goodbye, Charlie and Cactus Flower, Broadway theatres will dim their lights for one minute at 7.45pm on Friday, August 15.

Broadway League executive director Charlotte St Martin said that Bacall had a "distinct presence on stage and screen".

He added: "Along with her talent and memorable performances, her timeless beauty and witty intelligence will be remembered. Our thoughts are with her family, friends and fans."
